Tandem lift for Autojeřáby Malina
By Laura Hatton16 July 2014
Lift and transport service provider Autojeřáby Malina, based in Ostrava, Czech Republic, helped lift steel roof structures for an arena in Frydek-Místek.
Autojeřáby Malina used a Terex Explorer 5800 and a Terex AC 250-1 all terrain crane to complete the tandem lift. The 6-axle AC 250-1 has an 80 metre pinned boom and a 36 m extendable swing-away jib. The 5-axle Explorer 5800 has a 200 tonne capacity and a 70 m main boom. It is powered by a 405 kW Scania Euromot IV/Tier 4F engine.
The two cranes were used to lift the prefabricated structures that made up the new roof. The AC 250-1 was configured with a main boom of 41 m and a working radius of 21 m, while the Explorer 5800 was configured with a 42 m boom at a working radius of 24 m. The load weighed 28 tonnes and measured 30 m wide. It was lifted to a height of 18 m.
Radek Malina, Autojeřáby Malina president, said, “Jointly lifting a weight of around 28 tonnes is actually a relatively easy task for our two Terex cranes. But if the load is 30 metres wide and it is to be lifted from within a sport arena structure, precision is of utmost priority.”
